Gamer Tag

Hello I just recently created a windows live account after downloading Age of Empires through steam. I had no option to input my name or my gamer tag and it seems I was randomly given this one. I tried to change it in game but it was telling me I had to spend 800 points to change it. Do all players get random names without the ability to choose? Seems silly that I will have to be stuck with the tag ppooooo4opppp for as long as I dont spend money on windows live.

You seem to have used it to make that name. I imagine that it's against the Xbox LIVE ToU and CoC so I expect it'll be issued a FNC.

I didnt use it on this gamer tag. This is the tag that was originally given to me. All I did was sign up my gmail account with windows live games then started playing then noticed at the top right corner of my screen it said ppooooo4opppp above the city name I specified when selecting the race I wanted to play. I asked in chat if there was any chance I could change it and they said you get a free gamer tag change per account but it asks me for points when I try change it.

Er no that's definitely not one of the random ones you get upon signing up. Random ones are things like "BrownHouse", "PurpleCat", "FlyingSpoon" etc.

You might have created the account less recently or a friend used your email to make the account for you.

If you're particularly curious, phone support would be able to tell you the exact date the gamertag was created.
